Workshop on Pervasive Visual, Auditory and Alternative Modality Information Display
Pervasive Expression: Workshop on Pervasive Visual, Auditory and Alternative Modality Information Display is a workshop Oorganized at the 6th International Conference on Pervasive Computing (Sunday 18 May 2008, Sydney, Australia).
It's organized by Andrew Vande Moere, Kirsty Beilharz, Bert Bongers and Stephen Barrass and it will address the following topics:
"This workshop wants to bring together researchers, practitioners, technologists and artists from different domains, interested in the visual or auditory representation of information for users in the pervasive realm. We also hope to explore how novel visual, auditory and alternative modalities (e.g. tactile, olfactory, visceral) materials can function as a physical communicative layer that is truly pervasive. A few potential questions to be discussed in the workshop include: - How to embed pervasive expressive displays in physical reality and materials, such as artifacts, garments and spaces? - What are valid data mapping metaphors for expressive displays that are pervasive, and still can be intuitively understood? - How can the design of pervasive expressive displays influence the experience (e.g. engagement, reflection, persuasion, interpretation), conviction, attitude or behavior of onlookers, users, wearers or any person in its vicinity?"
